This zip folder contains two files: a powerpoint covering Classical Mayan religion and Mayan religion as it is practiced today (including the concept of syncretism with Catholicism) and a handout that students can use to think about how syncretism is displayed in modern Mayan practices. Great for teaching about indigenous religions and syncretism and getting students to think about Mayan culture as living, changing, and growing.
The powerpoint is 29 slides--I divided the lesson into two days usually. There are a few video and simulation links incorporated, so internet access is useful. Let me know if you would like more details!
